    Notes: This book presents a synthesis of research on the controls of dynamic changes to river systems, in particular under changing climatic conditions. The content covers both short engineering timescales and long geological timescales. The book will highlight the cross-disciplinary interest in rivers and their sediments and will interest geologists, geomorphologists, engineers and government agencies. | Contents: 4 January 2019 --- Accepted manuscript Describing Fluvial Systems: linking processes to deposits and stratigraphy / Jim Best and Christopher R.

    Description: The Nhecolândia region covers the southern wetlands of the Pantanal basin in Brazil. Characterized by myriad shallow freshwater and alkaline–saline lakes, the distinct natural features of the Nhecolândia wetland make it highly sensitive to climate change and the effects of human activities. This paper summarizes the natural and social aspects that have affected this delicate wetland and potential future impacts. We analysed the response of the wetland to historical changes in climate and human activity and used this understanding to forecast the response of the wetland to future changes. The data presented here show that this region is particularly sensitive to alterations in the flood regime, droughts and deforestation, which are intrinsically related to both global and local changes in climate and the intensification of cattle-ranching activities, which include deforestation and the introduction of cultivated pastures.
